Over the first 12 years of Ride For Doug, you have helped to raise over $220,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This money has supported research, and funded equipment for Muscular Dystrophy patients. You have additionally raised nearly than $20,000 for special projects for Doug himself. (such as the Stair Lift Project in 2016, and towards the vehicle in 2018) Thank you.

This year (2019) we are continuing the special project. Thanks to last year’s fundraising, we were able to purchase a (very) used accessible vehicle when Doug broke his leg and was unable to go out without a power chair. This year, we are continuing to raise money towards a more permanent vehicle solution.

The second option is to continue to donate to Muscular Dystrophy Canada – as we have across the years. MDC continues to support valuable research, and provide programs and equipment subsidies for kids like Doug. Both of these options make a real difference in the lives of kids with Muscular Dystrophy.

  • Donate to MDC
  • Give directly to Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Donate to this year’s ride or register as a fundraiser to join us in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy. RFD continues to support this charity.

    These donations are eligible for tax deductions.

  • Donate to Accessible Vehicle Project
  • Accessible vehicles are expensive. It costs approximately $20,000 to $30,000 to modify a vehicle for accessibility. This is on top of the base vehicle cost. Give to the Go Fund Me accessible vehicle fund to directly help Doug get a vehicle that can carry his chair. Click the donate button to learn more details about this project.
